7 of us stayed for a week at Theo's villa Sotiris for our first extended family holiday - a gift from my mother to my sister for her 40th birthday.
The villa was so lovely that when we arrived, my sister was convinced that we had walked into someone's home, and genuinely panicked that we were trespassing for the first few minutes until I assured her that the villa we had booked really was this nice in the photos. In fact, the photos didn't do it justice - the place was absolutely spotless, and the lovely Theo and Maria had went to the effort of meeting our every request - they even bought us in some basics such as bread and milk, as we were arriving late and didn't know what time the shops closed at.
The owners were so lovely and accommodating and gave us some of their very last olive oil harvested from the grove that surrounds the villa.
The sea view was absolutely stunning and the silence of the area divine, with only the sound of cicadas making for a mood of complete calm.
Getting up early before the rest of the house woke up and swimming in the morning silence was a real highlight.
The pool was spotless, and the bathroom and kitchen very modern and clean. There was also an ensuite with shower in the master bedroom and a outdoor pool shower. The kitchen was fully equipped with plates, cutlery pans etc. Everything you would need. We ate from the excellently equipped little bbq for every lunch
All bedrooms have air conditioning - which you pay 7 euros a day for each unit you use - you pay this to Theo and Maria.
The place is close to various amenities and there was a local taxi company that arrived in under 15 minutes and understood English. In the heat you wouldn't want to walk the 25 minutes to the harbour, but there is lots of car, bike and dune buggy hire places right on the front before you turn off the main road to the villa.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this place and my mum has started saving up already for her next trip back. It was also great value for money.
We brought little underwater tea lights to liven up the pool at night and spent a lot of time drinking cocktails by the bar and playing pool on the old but fun bashed up table.
We had big plans to see all the little surrounding areas of interest like coral bay, Nero chorio and the such but we so enjoyed the peace of the villa we spent most of our days hanging around the pool eating bbq, and drinking beers together.
Overall, it was a little slice of paradise and I would wholeheartedly recommend it.
Thank you to Theo, Maria, Katie and all of the lovely cleaners for being really lovely.
